Andres Londoño's curator insight, April 29, 12:37 AM
Teaching a language online has various advantages when it comes to facilitating the learning process of the students. Tutors from around the world and specially tutors from the target language being learnt can offer different methods and teaching approaches to get the best out of their pupils. Furthermore, there are various teaching platforms that offer a number of different methods of teaching, this is very helpful for teachers as they can choose which platform will suit the tutor and pupil the most. In addition, the internet can allow the professor to take advantage and use every tool the computer and virtual space can offer the tutor and student. Learners can easily access online dictionaries, interactive whiteboards and message chats which will help the learning process during and outside the lesson. Lastly, taking into consideration the different teachers and accents available online, this will give the student the power to choose what language and accent to be exposed to and learn as much as possible.
